While I really like the extended trailer, I think it reveals far too much. I feel like I've seen a 5 minute version of the Pilot already that only includes the main points. Not good.

Costume is too dark in color and not a very good design.

Iris West...Black. Thanks for not sticking to the original source material casting directors. x\(

All in all, an enjoyable watch. I'll give the show a chance as I think it has huge potential. Even more so today than the 90's version. I hope John Wesley Shipp ends up making some Cameoes. \:\)






It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?

I agree. I wish I hadn't watched it.

Black/White, I don;t care. I just hope she's a good actress. And that they write the character well.

I really can't wait for this show!

I don't have a problem with the costume.  Like Arrow they are going for the real world look.  i.e  No Spandex!

John Wesley Shipp is in the show (how much is yet to be determined) and you can see him in the extended trailer as well!

True, I agree, I would speculate that the producers felt that such an extended preview was vital though to sell this concept to the audience - the costume is a little dodgy after all and this is a fairly unusual superhero idea that isn't from Marvel studios. I don't care for such a young Barry, but this is television and the requirements are radically different to comicbooks. I do wonder from the trailer whether the man in the wheelchair is meant to be Zolomon Hunter or an equivalent, it looks a safe bet that what killed Barry's Mom was the Reverse-Flash, and our wheelchair scientist does seem to strongly tread in the comicbook Zolomon's footsteps.In short though this looks to be a definite winner. I hope it does take off.

\(yes\)
